Processions At Worcester Arts Workshop

 

Worcester Arts Workshop is very proud to have been chosen as one of the 100 organisations that have been commissioned to make a banner for the PROCESSIONS event, taking part in June this year.

 

PROCESSIONS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a mass participation artwork to celebrate one hundred years of votes for women*. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, we are inviting women* and girls across the UK to come and mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women* in the 21st century.

On Sunday 10th of June, women* and girls in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London will walk together as part of this celebratory mass participation artwork. Wearing either green, white or violet, the colours of the suffrage movement, the PROCESSIONS will appear as a flowing river of colour through the city streets.

*those who identify as women or non-binary
We will be running sessions to design and make our banner on alternate Fridays, 12.30-2.30.

23rd March, 6th, 20th April, 4th, 18th May.

We will be organising transport to attend the PROCESSION in Cardiff on 10th June.
